Many bands I hear are quite possibly masters at that lo-fi sound, and production, specifically, and it really works out great for them. Many, however, also seem stuck in those spots, unable to grow too much into anything else. I don’t feel the lo-fi sound is something Aliment should shoot for. I can dig the lo-fi sounds for certain bands, and even Aliment as well, as songs like Pile of Shit, and Breathless Words, not on this disc, I really dig, so maybe a re-record session just for kicks is in order for this particular demo. However on another token, looking past this lo-fi not 100 percent tight demo, I see really big things for Aliment in the future. I think that Aliment, has all the room in the world to grow into musical perfection, and I also believe that Aliment has everything it takes to be huge. After, listening to their demos and seeing them live, seeing the concepts of these songs, Aliment is an entity, and is not something that comes along too often. Sure, you’ve got your math rock, insane, and straight grind bands, you’re hardcore scene, diminishing real punk scene, with emo pop punk rock seeping into the cracks almost everywhere, you’ve got you’re trendy bar rock, and all your trendy fluff in the mainstream music industry, and all of your scenester this and that stuff, and you’ve got a ton of everything here and there in between all around and all of it has one thing in common, all trying to sound like someone or something else, or trying to fit into this scene or that scene. And in the process of doing things for these reasons, things lose soul, inner passion, and truth. But just like entity, Stevie Ray Vaughan played with immense passion and realness, in the midst of 80’s fluff dominating the scene, like Boy George, Madonna, and Flock of Seagulls, Aliment plays straight from there souls, and this is clear, and it comes so natural. With Aliment, what you see is what you get, there is no bullshit there, its just all realness, and it reminds me of kids jamming out in a garage just for the love of making something special, and the sake of good tunes, good people, family, brotherhood. Aliment is one giant musical family. I think that after a lot of these contemporary bands, or scenes, die off, no one will even remember what they were, much less all about, but after Aliment dies, they will be missed, and deemed legendary. Aliment has something heaven-like, more so than any other band I’ve ever seen, or heard in my entire life, that’s not something you can describe, but its just something that happens, bringing me back to another Stevie Ray Vaughan quote, “I don’t know if its something in the water, the earth, the wind, the way you grow up, its just a feeling you get that’s there, and its not something you can describe, or not something you can take a bite of and eat it, its just something thats there.” Some people have got it, and millions more don’t. Aliment definitely has got it!
With that being said, this disc consisting of very lo-fi, drum machine, wrestling match, stadium anthem,
psychedelic, vacation metal, clown metal, influenced by Pantera,
is so all over the place,
in styles, and soundscape ideas, that it makes it difficult to
completely classify, because the root of what Aliment sounds like live is merely
hinted at, but in lo-fi form, plus in addition,
has songs thrown in that Aliment does not touch live, and are totally different
from the Aliment sound. Aliment
sounds different live, than they do recorded in this double disc album.
This album is all over the place, in experimental ideas for a bunch of
straight up stomp core clown sex
metal heads, but I feel that it serves as a great demo template.
Aliment should use it to work off of, when making new future hi-fi albums.
After, listening to this demo, I feel that Aliment, will be an extremely
badass force to be reckoned with in the united states of metal,
as they also do a good job incorporating soundscape interludes of
strange, psychedelic, experimental art rock in between hard ass anthem-like crunchy stomp metal tracks. All members are very musical in their own unique ways, and when
actually coming together as Aliment on the disc, they also show their potential “live,”
with Selpultura's, “Slave New World,” the only time on the entire disc,
recorded with a video camera at a high school talent show. Aliment got the boot due to the fact that their lead singer a notorious wrestling SCW New Jersey thug jumped into the audience, and kicked some guy in the face just after the performance, just for bad mouthing Aliments performance from the front row. That spectacle, plus watching Rick chug an entire 1/5 of Hennessey in 5 minutes flat through a beer bong, can be seen in the Aliment Home Video. ALIMENT are trendsetters, and Jason Sensation gets the most perfect guitar sound, I have almost ever heard. Lookout for Sensation to get his own endorsements for a guitar store someday. I think he plays guitar for every band in North Jersey as well. Back to ALIMENT. For only a moment on the disc,
you get to hear Aliment's potential as an
actual live band, the craziness of their live show,
the "keeping it realness of it all," and also the humor, and good time vibe, you get
from Aliment. They are great entertainers, and again they have shown me that on this cd.
Aliment should go into the studio, and get produced
into something greater and hi-fi, in the vein of Pantera. So this cd, gets a great job, nice try from me, but keep plugging away, in tightness, and get into
a studio, and record an album with tracks Klitch, Breathless Words, Genocide, My Loose
Teeth, Unholy War, Everyday of My Life, Oh My God!, Pile of Shit, I Guess Grey, ALIMENT, Necro Shock, Kill Surrounding Zombies, Competition, The Fucking Gootch, Bodies Flew, will all be incredible tracks. Mark My Words. Aliment is Coming! LOOKOUT! Only thing left to say is go on Wayne Newton, Bro!
